Popular Mailbox E-mail Client No Longer Requiring Reservation System
Any who have tried the popular Mailbox e-mail client for iOS have seen the screen above. Mailbox required you to grab a reservation and wait in line with hundreds of thousands of other users to use their application.
Following the recent update to the popular Mailbox e-mail client for iOS, Mailbox has Tuesday announced via their blog that they are lifting the reservation system today and giving everyone access to Mailbox as quickly as they can grab it from the App Store:

Well I'm still waiting on support for other email providers

the app is nice but has a few issues i don't like.
1) if i update my gmail inbox online and delete / move messages, i have a badge count of "1" even though no new messages have arrived;
2) instead of having a badge count of active conversations (which is pointless IMO) and using the traditional method of showing how many new e-mails I DO have, mailbox will always show a "1" regardless of how many new e-mails I receive.
3) other providers would be nice (I know this is being worked on)

Ok am I seriously missing something here? An app with a "waiting line" in order to use it? Do these developers just having trouble grasping the concept downloading files, that it makes no sense, and that it's an obvious attempt to take the idea of standing in line at a physical store or at the door of a building for entry. Please don't tell me it's about limited bandwidth or so, as apps are hosted by Apple for AppStore apps, and not by devs themselves. I would really like to hear one good reason why this existed at all. Thanks.

Please forgive me, but in the past these sort of things were used as a vehicle to push inflated, if not totally fabricated stats, and other times it was because of the developer's complete lack of understanding of networking and application design. Not saying that either is true here though.
